Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.Yes. She can visit her local social security office with her sons' original birth certificates and doctor/school records to obtain social security numbers for them. She must show proof of her sons' U.S. citizenship, age and identity, as well as proof of her own identity. https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10023.pdfShe can change her social security card from her maiden name to her married name by bringing her birth certificate, marriage certificate and valid picture ID (driver's license, etc.)https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/article/3749/how-do-i-change-or-correct-my-name-on-my-social-security-number-cardPlease let me know if I can assist you further.Thank you and best regards,Barb
